Why should I get help for my child?
The early years of a child’s life are the most important. From birth to 3, rapid learning and brain development takes place. Some children need a little extra help to develop certain skills.
What help is there?
The Infant Learning Program is a partnership with families who may need services for their infants or toddlers at risk or with developmental delays and/or disabilities. The services are for children birth to 3 years of age and will provide extra help for your child’s development.
Who will help my family?
An infant learning program provider will assist you with the evaluation. An ILP provider will help you and your family develop an individual plan of services for your child.
What is the cost?
No family will be denied services due to inability to pay. Medicaid, Denali KidCare, private insurance and family co-pay are accepted.
